The Shuttling Heart!!!

The Shuttling Heart!!! short poem

The Moment you walk in with the shuttle racket;

My deserted street welcomes with a bouquet!!!

Along with the cork, you bring liveliness too here;

As you settle to serve, the winds obey your move!!

I see you there… Busy with the badminton game

Confused I am, to wave a “hi” or gently pass-by!!!

I deliberately walk slowly, to look at you for long;

Observing you chasing the cork as the winds blow!!

Every time you jump, even the clouds blush, I feel

Even the wind manipulates aptly to make you look lovely!!!

I tried to hear the words you utter while playing

Hardly had I got any word… but only a song!! Mind boggling!!!

Then, I decided to watch your expressions to guess its meaning;

Surprise to me!!! Heard a violin tone of excitement!! It’s you!!

I wished to fill the moment with something lovely;

Winds heard me..Now, showers of bougainvillea over you fully!

Thanks to you, the cork shuttles and so is my heart!!

You won’t let the former down; wish you be my savior too!!!

When I come very close to you, the magic begins!!

Every other thing turns static; it’s you and me alone active!!

Now I try opening up my heart to you, as you take a pause;

Trying hard to save myself from melting for You looking at me!

Now, I am hit by something light… the cork; reality resumes;

Cute apologies from you, me yearning for more such hits!!!!

I gently pass with a smile without talking to you!!!

Poor you!! Considering the smile as forgiving!!

And my heart exactly knows what it is!!!

And it happily continues to shuttle!!
